Job Description

Senior Commissioning officer – Cambridgeshire

£307 Day rate

Contract – Full Time:

Hybrid working - Negotiable however could be 1 or 2 days in office


  • The role exists to work with Commissioning Managers to develop and implement commissioning plans and strategies on behalf of Children’s Services and Education and, where possible, through an integrated approach to commissioning.
  • The role will provide additional support at a higher level than currently available from Commissioning Officers to enable the Commissioning Manager to successfully manage a much larger portfolio of Children’s commissioned provision and strategies than currently allocated. Not only does the role add capacity, but it also provides an enhanced skillset, allowing the Commissioning Manager to delegate more complex tasks to the P1 that they could not give to the Commissioning Officer.
  • In turn, this gives the Commissioning Manager capacity to take on additional projects within his/her portfolio. The growth in portfolio is due to additional departmental priorities introduced by the Joint Administration.
  • Ensuring sufficient, affordable, quality care provision is available locally both now and, in the future
  • Implementing innovations in the way the council commissions care for local people to increase choice and control (e.g. more self-directed support such as direct payments and individual service funds)
